FOR INFORMATION. The first of a series of painting guides for WW2 Warships is in preparation. These will cover many individual ships through their WW2 service and change of camouflage schemes etc. The series has been many years in research and preparation. It is especially designed to enable wargamers and ship modellers to find colour plates of large numbers of ships they wish to paint.
